Tilapia (St. Peter’s Fish)
Tilapia is a “wastepaper basket term” for over a hundred species of fish in the family Cichlidae.
There are now Tao-only-knows-how-many more species thanks to all the hybridization courtesy of tech-savvy gene-jockeys.
Tilapia “depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”
Most tilapia are — were — fresh-water fish, but salt-water breeds are being “created” by well-financed gene knockers.
Bio-hackers take advantage of tilapia’s amazing ability to adapt.
The Salton Sea was originally stocked with tilapia.
No matter how salty the Salt On Sea got, the tilapia thrived while other fish died.
Many varieties of tilapia are now being raised in sea cages.
“There’s more than one way to skin a tilapia.” — Ba Ba Re Bop
Tilapia has been the fourth most popular “fish” in the U.S. since 2002.
St. Peter’s fish (another name for tilapia) was allegedly used by Jesus to feed the masses.
The Jerusalem Water Walker jockeyed genes the old-fashioned way — with Love.
Luther Burbank would concur.
It was unusual to get Omega 3 Disease (Yellow Fat Disease) from tilapia, but Twenty-First Century fish farmers are making it easier.
One secret is in the algae, including Chlorella vulgaris and its extracts.
Chlorella is also a natural antibiotic, better than penicillin.
Penicillin is abiotic. Chlorella is antibiotic.
It’s hard to tell what farmed tilapia are being fed.
It depends of who’s farming them and where they’re being farmed.
Some tilapia are fed carp pellets.
Some are fed chicken pellets.
Some are fed blood meal.
Some are fed “minced trash fish.”
Some are fed “eel feed.”
Some are fed aquatic weed feed.
Some are fed various types of algae and combinations thereof.
Some are fed Met-plastein (methionine-enriched soybean plastein).
According to “Genetically modified fish,” Wikipedia (last edited May 15, 2018) …
“Some GM fish that have been created have promoters driving an over-production of ‘all fish’ growth hormone. This results in dramatic growth enhancement in several species, including salmonids, carps and tilapias.”
Continuous feeding of tilapia for weight gain (compared to discrete feeding) is changing the circadian peak of gastric secretion to midday — something to think about if you eat according to 24-hour Growth Periods.
Fish farmers are making it easier for tilapia to get and transmit Omega 3 Disease, while commercial ethoxyquin manufacturers are making it harder (but at what price?).
T. Yamashita et al. (“The synthetic antioxidant, ethoxyquin, adversely affects immunity in tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus),” Agriculture Nutrition, Mar. 6, 2009) wrote …
“Ethoxyquin (EQ) has been used as an antioxidant in livestock, aquaculture and pet foods. Animal food safety law has established the upper limit of EQ in animal feed at 150 mg kg−1. However, the risk of EQ at the approved level for aquaculture feed (150 mg kg−1) to fish health is unknown. Here, we examine the effect of EQ on the immunity of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). EQ concentration in the blood reached 0.16 mg L−1 in fish fed EQ at the approved level. This level of EQ inhibited phagocytic activity of leucocytes in vitro and antibacterial activity of whole blood in vivo. Furthermore, pyknosis in the liver was observed throughout the duration of feeding. However, after 30 days of experimental challenge with feed containing 150 mg kg−1 of EQ, no significant difference was observed in mortality. Although EQ at the approved level in feed causes immunosuppression in fish, the severity of immunosuppression does not lead to a lowering of disease resistance for short feeding periods.”

C. Agius & S.A Agbede (“An electron microscopical study on the genesis of lipofuscin, melanin and haemosiderin in the haemopoietic tissues of fish,” Journal of Fish Biology, Apr. 1984) wrote …
“Lipofuscin appears to be derived from damaged cellular components, such as effete mitochondria, through the peroxidation of their unsaturated lipids. Haemosiderin is almost certainly derived from the breakdown of haemoglobin from effete erythrocytes. Melanin appears to be derived from phagocytosis of melanin granules or their precursor organelles from melanin‐containing cells. Both lipid peroxidation and haemoglobin breakdown produce free radicals and cations which are potentially toxic.”

Hi Atom, what is a good natural source of chlorella ?
June 15, 2018 @ 10:10 pm Atom
I haven’t bought supplements for awhile.
A legitimate “100% organic chlorella” in capsules (not tablets) is what I’d buy.

What makes chlorella an anti-biotic ?

Following the Omega 3 Deception, antibiotics and bactericides are the second biggest scam of the last 100 years, and probably a lot longer if the public doesn’t snap out of its Zombie Spell.
Until Vibrant Gal and I wake the world up to Yellow Fat Disease, this second biggest scam is off limits.
Every plant manufactures antibiotics and bactericides as defense chemicals, and 99% of this COMPREHENSIVE data has been conveniently LOST to those who don’t know where to look.
Regarding the SPECIFIC case of chlorella, its broad spectrum of antibiotics and bactericides depend on its site of collection, the degree of pollution, and the nature of the pollutants.
Hiding the fact that ANY plant’s broad spectrum of antibiotics and bactericides can be easily KNOWN, the beaker boys are busier than transgenic bees manufacturing them out of GMO microalgae.
Why not ordinary microalgae? Because they can’t be PATENTED.
Follow a product from SEA to SHELF to corporate POCKET, and you’ll know it’s ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS.

Chlorella anibiotic was the first of many algae antibiotics discovered (1942).
Ads stating, “Chlorellin acts as an antibiotic” are malarkey. Chlorellin *IS* an antibiotic — more potent than penicillin.
